Tombo is Japanese for dragonfly, a symbol of renewal and positive force, Tombo, is London’s first authentic Japanese café & matcha bar.
So far have only had the desserts but they were all delicious, personally for me have just the right amount of matchaness. It also has a lovely clean and modern design inside and more seating downstairs. Fairly reasonable prices too, especially for the savoury food which I intend to try soon!
Now this is a great poke! Tasty, fresh and yummy 😋 How cute are the desserts! I would eat this every day if they delivered to me.
Wheelchair access: small step to get in and doorway is on the narrow side. There are only a few tables on the ground floor, but still definitely worth a visit.
EDIT: I have revised my rating to 5 stars from 2 stars because of the response I received from Tombo's customer service team. They have shown me they value their customers and I will definitely be going back.
I recently visited Tombo and I was disappointed by the customer service. The guy behind the till got visibly annoyed and spoke to me rudely when I politely asked him to repeat what he said as my hearing isn't the best. He then repeatedly pronounced my name incorrectly despite me spelling it out for him. The food at Tombo has always been delicious and I love the new additions to the menu. However, this encounter has made me reluctant to go back.
Delicious food, quick, healthy and reasonably priced. The menu has good choice, and if you're avoiding carb you can substitute rice for courgette noodles. Lots of ways to personalise your dish. V impressed
Poke bowls as a concept are already above the usual sushi packs you'll get at your local itsu or wasabi - they have enough of rice(that is made to be delicious) to fill you up and enough fish to satisfy your sashimi craving. So this place should be higher on your list then other sushi places. Add to that absolutely scrumptious variety of teas and matcha deserts, consistently fresh ingredients and you have a winner. All in all, perfect place for lunch or a late take away when you are out for drinks in Soho.
